The cation-tuning engineering strategy as a new emerging frontier has attracted significant attention for transition metal-based catalysts. Its advantages are summarized with special emphasis on altering the electronic structure and charge distribution of transition metal-based catalysts. This Concept also reviews its application for the oxygen reduction reaction, the oxygen evolution reaction, and Zn air batteries, and also proposes future opportunities.
